SEATAC, Wash. - A 46-year-old woman told police that a man peeked in on her as she was using the bathroom at a SeaTac Jack in the Box earlier this month.
The incident happened about 4:50 a.m. at the on Jack in the Box on South 188th Street. The woman told police that the man first tried to open the locked door of the stall she was in. When the door didn't open, she said he went into the next stall.
The woman told police that when she looked up, she saw a man looking at her over the top of the stall.
"Can I help you?" she asked him. He then got down and left without saying anything, according to police.
The woman called 911, and when King County Sheriff's Office officers arrived, they saw a man getting onto a bus across the street from the Jack in the Box that matched the description of the man given by the woman.
Police detained the man, Darryl Emanuel Horne Jr., 31, and the woman identified him as the bathroom voyeur.
"Please sir," Horne said as he was being handcuffed, "I won't do it again."
Horne claimed that he had been looking for his girlfriend when he peeked over the bathroom stall, according to court documents.
A glass pipe with rubber tubing, which police identified as a crack pipe, was found on Horne at the time of arrest, police said.
Horne was charged with voyeurism and remains in King County Jail. He has not yet had an arraignment.
